If you’re an avid reader of women’s magazines, you’ll know there’s something new amongst their pages in the world of beauty month in, month out. If it isn’t a brand new tinted moisturiser (BB and CC creams are just two that seem to be revolutionising the industry), there’s a recently-launched vibrating facial brush (yep, really) you just ‘have to get your hands on’ or what about when they said snail juice would give us instantly youthful skin?
So, how do you know where and how to spend your cash when it comes to the latest products, treatments and procedures? Magazines and the media are largely dictated by the adverts they sell; so can you really rely on the products they’re pushing?
As with anything, we say it’s always worth doing your research. What’s more, what works for one person isn’t forced to work for the next; where possible, always try before you buy. I usually always ask for mini samples before I splurge on an expensive product! And if you’re still not sure, look for research to back up the claims magazines, newspapers – or even your friends – are making.
When it comes to beauty acupuncture, for one, there’s plenty of research to add weight to some of the claims you might have already heard about. The pictorial evidence seen here in this Daily Mail article is enough to convince anyone to give the treatment a go, particularly when it comes to treating wrinkles or fine lines.
Complementing the treatment with a bespoke facial mask, John Tsagaris – a renowned beauty acupuncture expert who treats A-list celebs, beauty bloggers and magazine editors – can help target a number of skin conditions, as well as improve the overall health of your complexion.
Known as beauty acupuncture, this type of facial acupuncture you probably haven’t even heard about in the beauty magazines yet, stimulates the skin’s ability to regenerate and restructure itself. *wowzers* It accelerates anti-inflammatory activity to remove accumulative toxins from the skin. On top of this, it encourages new collagen and elastin production to ensure the skin not only looks but feels firmer and younger.
So, how does it work I hear you ask? Energy and micro-circulation throughout the skin on the face and in the skin’s muscles are stimulated by the application of small acupuncture needles. These penetrate key points and areas of the face, as well as on the head and body to strengthen the skin’s fibres and plump facial muscles.
Good news for puffy dark eyes and bags, too. They’ll soon appear much smoother thanks to this revolutionary treatment, which is both natural and relatively cheap.
Preventing the formation of wrinkles and minimising the appearance of fine lines, beauty acupuncture goes much deeper – quite literally – than your standard ‘lotions and potions’ as seen amongst the pages of high end beauty magazines.
An exclusive skin rejuvenating method that unlocks the ability of the face to reflect a healthier and youthful appearance, beauty acupuncture can also address the causes of early ageing.
Of course, anyone who prefers to first try out acupuncture and its effectiveness on an existing ailment can enjoy the technique the ‘traditional way’. Used for everything from acne scarring to general aches and pains, acupuncture is now widely used in the NHS as a viable treatment option for a host of conditions.
It’s one of the oldest and longest known healing systems but perhaps one we know minimal about. Acupuncture is definitely here to stay, though. Helping to improve the healing potential of our bodies, it can get your health back of track following illness, or even ensure you maintain optimum wellbeing in general.
Treating the person and body as a ‘whole’, traditional Chinese medicine functions at the deepest invisible level and applies on visible physical matters like our minds and bodies. More than that, though, it can help harmonise the relationships that exist within natural laws, as well as treat disease. We reckon there are few topical creams and potions that can do that…
